Valparaiso is shaped as a natural amphitheater with much of the city hanging from the hills of the Pacific coast in disordered harmony.  Its heritage is embodied in the customs, traditions and particular lifestyle of its inhabitants, called "portenos."

Your walking tour starts with an introduction to the city, revealing its brilliant past as a commercial port which still is one of the most important in South America.  Walk among the heritage buildings surrounding the square, all inspired in the French architecture of the 17th century.  Climb up to Cerro Alegre and Cerro Conecpcion by funicular cabled railways and get the best views of the city and the ocean from those viewpoints.  This area was listed as World Heritage by UNESCO in 2002 for its colored houses perched at crazy angles connected by a gigantic labyrinth of streets, long staircases and lookout points.

Next, descend to the downtown by funicular and explore the "old town," filled with beautiful architecture and narrow streets.  End the tour by taking a trolley ride through the port area.  This local public transport is considered a "rolling heritage," being the second oldest transportation service in South America, operating since 1952.
